New Scale Technologies Inc. has added the M3-L to its Micro-Mechatronics
line of closed-loop linear motion modules. With 0.5-μm position resolution
and measuring <27.5 x 13 x 7.5 mm, the miniature system is suitable for precision
motion control of variable inductors, trimming capacitors and optical elements for
radio frequency, microwave and photonics tuning applications. It adds reliable motion
to a wide range of miniature optical and handheld instruments, aerospace and unmanned
aerial vehicle controls, and biomedical systems, including fluid controls and microsurgery.
Operating on a 3.3-V battery and high-level digital motion commands, the system
integrates all motion and control functions into one package, including a piezoelectric
linear micromotor, a position sensor, a guide mechanism, a motor driver, a control
processor and software.
